: Power Window MOD
02-29-2004, 02:33 AM
Ok i have recently been in my friends BMW 325 is...its pretty nice yes its a 95 but has sooo many options and for beinmg a 95 it has a lot of cool stuff, one thing i thought was neat was the power windows, were next to his shifter....
Can you move the power window controls down by the shifter? That would be sick, its like right there for you, well does anyone think it can be done?

Absolutely possible. I do customized interiors on cars and thats really easy to do. also why don't you just add a second master switch instead of move it . or do you just plan on shaveing the door panels?

well, were could i get a switch like that? and im getting ready to change my interior lights from green to blue, any recomendations???

Try ford or the local salvage yard. As far as interior lights if I'm thinking on the same page. You mean in the center console,dash,doors,and center instrument cluster. If this is right you could try useing light gel lenses. Then back all the panels you want the color change on.

can you explain two things for me........how would i change the center instrament cluster and whats light gel lenses?

Remove the air controls. Dis assemble the the controll box. you will see where the lenses for the light is supposed to shine through. Cut the gel lense to fit.
Light gel lenses are used mostly in stage lighting par cans like at concerts. it is a thin colored plastic that can with stand very high temps. Any good music shop should have them in many colors and they are really inexpensive so even if there is a goof it won't set you back. Usually they are 6x6 or 8x8.

I see, I didnt know if you where going to replace the bulb or leave the bulb. In that case it would change the color. All you need is the smled,cboard, and to tap into the power.
Thought you ment the whole interior.

wait you lost me, im going to by little leds to replace the green ones.....what were you talking about? whats smld cboard? and what power...im kinda stupid when it vcomes to this stuff!!

surface mount light emiting diode.
circuit board to mount them on.
95% of the cars I've ever seen use light bulbs.
It sounds as if you want to replace bulbs with smled's

O.K. but all this has nothing to do with your original post and if you could give a little more detail that would help others answer the questions you have....If the qeustion is about lights on the enterior why didn't you just PM bak9799.

On a somewhat side topic: what's involved in converting a manual window focus to power? How much wiring is involved in this and how much $$$ are we looking at?

well i have power windows, i just want to add another power window button on my cenetr counsle near my shifter, like were the heated seat buttons are in the svt.....and about the color mod, im sure he has a stick, because he only mentions the dash, plus he said he has no power windows, so i have an auto, which means my shifter guages lights up......yea
